I went to a women’s tea yesterday, and I was amazed at the nationalities represented there. Of the 11 women there, there were….
-2 from the UK
-1 from Czech Republic
-1 from France
-1 from Switzerland
-1 from Germany
It was really neat to hear the stories of how these women from all these different places and backgrounds ended up in Nigeria. I love that God’s kingdom is made up of such diversity.
…But our tea time was just a minute glimpse of what we will one day see in heaven:
“After this I looked and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice, ‘Salvation belongs to our God,
who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.’ All the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures. They fell down on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying: ‘Amen! Praise and glory and wisdom and thanks and honor and power and strength be to our God for ever and ever. Amen!'” (Revelation 7:9-12)
